Another fresh fish weighing about 500 gm from my hubby's fishing trip. This time, I steamed the fish with fried chopped garlic and chai por. Fragrant and slightly salty flavour from the garlic and chai por.
My hubby loves to eat steamed fish right away after steaming, so didn't have much time to shoot more photos to show the freshness of the fish. Taste really good.
